Текст песни If I Only Had The Nerve - Nathan Lane

Lion. Said a lion, poor, neurotic lion. To a miss who'll listen to him rave. "Oh, the lord made me a lion, but…the lord forgot to make me brave"

Dorothy. Then his tail began to curl and wave

Lion. Life…is…sad believe me, Missy, when you're born to be a sissy without the vim and verve. But I could change my habits never more be scared of RABBITS! if I only had the nerve. I'm afraid there's no denying I'm Just a dandelion, a fate I don't deserve. But I could show my prowess be a lion not a mouse if I only had the nerve. Oh, I'd be in my stride, a king down to the core, I could roar the way I never roared before, and then I'd r-r-roof and roar some more. I would show the dinosaurus whose king around the forest a king they'd better serve, why with my regal beezor I could be another Caesar, if I only had the nerve. I'd be brave as a blizzard

Tin Man. I'd be gentle as a lizard

Scarecrow. I'd be clever as a gizzard

Dorothy. If the wizard is a wizard who will serve

Scarecrow. Then I'm sure to get a brain

Tin Man. A heart

Dorothy. A home

Lion. The nerve
